by for a moment, steve, i want to introduce you to bonnie, her husband died the morning of 9/11. he was on the 105th floor of tower one, the cantor fitzgerald offices, but even after his death, he never stopped sending bonnie messages of his love and bonnie soon found out she was the not the only one experiencing this. >> i went up to her room and she was playing by herself and having a conversation. i asked her who she was talking to. >> i said all the boys, they tell me knock knock jokes and funny. >> she proceed today name all of the guys that timmy was friends with on the desk. she went downstairs and brought a picture of all the boys. >> and i said, do you know who these boys are? >> and she said, of course, and she pointed to each one of them. >> amazing story, and there are so many more of them. joining me now is bonnie, the author of the book "messages signs, visits and premonitions from loved ones lost on 9/11" it's great to see you again, bonnie. >> good morning. >> gretchen: you wrote the book and it was a best seller and every time you think of your husband. >> we're in front of ground
't wake up. >> joining us is cbs news legal analyst jack ford and bonnie fuller of hollywoodlife.com. she clearly doesn't have any money because she was in jail a number of years and she has gotten a judgment of a hundred,000 she has to pay. >> it's an interesting statute that florida has and it's not often used apparently but it gives the court the ability to say if somebody is convicted after crime and there are costs we can allocate to that crime, it gives the court the ability to say, you know what? you're going to pay for it. here, obviously, the big question was how do you work out those numbers? how do you decide what numbers she is involved with? and, you know, the judge was sort of solemnesque about this because the government the prosecution was looking for about $500,000 for this. the defense was saying no it's way too much. she should only be required to pay back that portion that can be directly related to what she was convicted of is telling lies not the investigation into the death. the judge came in and said all right, here is what i'm goin
future. >> bonny mulieri. >> it's like watching your child stand in the middle of the interstate and you just have to hope they don't get hit. >> reporter: holly carr. 46 mothers fighting for their children and yours by shaving their heads. susan did it on live tv during an earlier broadcast in honor of her 10-year-old son. cancer took his life earlier this year. >> i have done this for david and i have now been able to check this off as something i've done and i'm proud. our children didn't have a choice. they were bald because they had this terrible disease. >> reporter: the number 46 is significant because each week day in the united states, 46 children in the united states are diagnosed with pediatric cancer, like little decklin eight days shy of his first birthday when he lost his life to cancer. >> we started looking into pediatric cancer and we're shocked at how underfunded it was. >> we've been through the worst of the worst. and i think going through that with your child you realize like what's important and what's not. >> reporter: and what's important now is raising money. mor
can be paid for the story. bonnie, how much would this story go for and withed it be tainted? does any network or tbe the com that paid casey anthony? >> millions of people followed this case. they were obsessed with it. for that reason, i believe there women be bidding for her interview. however, i don't think she'll get top dollar. she'll get a couple hundred thousand dollars in some way. they'll work something out and then the question is, can she sell a story about her life and what happened? can she get involved in a book deal? i think she'd have a hard time with a book publishing company offering her $1 million for a book. could she get a percentage if she cooperated with an author that did the book? >> that would be a more likely scenario we'll see. >> is this something like with o.j. simpson back in the day where he basically had to sell-off everything, including his heisman trophy. any type of money that casey gets? >> yes. if she gets a job, let's say she gets a job and she's making whatever a weekly salary is, they are step in and say we'll take a piece of that. the same way

that you physically endanger another person's life. i mean, you don't have to be bonnie and clyde to be a bank robber, and you don't have to be al qaeda to be a terrorist. >> i don't think these people are terrorists. i think the people and the agencies and the industry that they're fighting are the true terrorists. when you've got big timber companies coming into the northwest, clear-cutting old- growth forest; big oil companies with their big oil spills that cost billions and billions and billions of dollars-- you don't see the fbi raiding these executives' homes or anything like that. they aren't being threatened with life in prison. all they really do is just pay a fine and move on to the next court. >> the old adage that, you know, one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter is true. you know, if you agree with their motives, "wow, they're a hero. they're not a terrorist at all." if you disagree with their motives, then they're a terrorist. that's tough, okay? that's why its a whole lot cleaner to deal with crimes. crimes, non-crimes. okay, im good with that. i can d
town, as well as bonny walid, which has a tribe that has been traditionally quite pro qaddafi. there are people inside these places who may feel that they have no choice. they're a bit desperado. they worry if they do give up they may be executed and they really have nothing to lose by continuing to fight. >> reporter: tara, you had a very interesting piece in the "washington post" this morning talking about the fact that libyans, ordinary libyans are growing impatient with their leadership. what did you mean? explain that a little more. >> well, ordinary libyans are not hearing very much about the process of nation building that's going on right now. and part of the reason for this is because there is some chaos within that process. libya is basically a country that was left without any institutions, unlike egypt and tunisia. libya has no real army to speak of. libya has no parliamentary body. many of its institutions are just in complete disarray. and so libyans are waiting for these institutions to start up again, and in order for that to happen, there has to be some sort o
for the gridlock, carol? >> some of them do. how can president obama end the partisan bickering? this from bonnie? he could stop behaving like a child. this from christina. bipartisan ship is a farce. unfortunately the president keeps giving in to the gop, and has gone way beyond extending the hand of bipartisanship, and they have been aiming for the jugular since the beginning. this is from courtney, obama should dissolve the senate and the house and declare himself the emperor like the emperor in "star wars." >> we like our democracy. we don't want an emperor. thank you, carol. >> sure. >> you told us what you wanted to see. your choose the news story just moments away.

. host: from maryland we hear from bonnie on our republican line. caller: good morning. i don't blame the president for job loss. i blame our local politicians. our governor went to asia, our governor went to asia, hired a bunch of teachers, paid their expenses to relocate to baltimore, all the while they laid our teachers off. now he's going to india. he bragged. we have five companies in baltimore and we have 50 companies in india. he's traveling with businessmen at the taxpayers expense. to me, it would make more sense to hire local rather than go to other companies and pay them to come to our country and take our jobs. to me, this is our politician's fault. it's the locals. it's not the president's responsibility. it's the state responsibility to keep our jobs in our state. guest: now, i have to say i don't know about the conditions and the situation in maryland that you're talking about. but there's no question that state and local governments have been shrinking. they've lost about 550,000 jobs in all over the last couple of years. and so that's one area. states are dealing with
into the city of bonnie walid, trying to capture the city from supporters loyal to moammar gaddafi. the area is one of gaddafi's last remaining strongholds. rebel forces have set today as the deadline for gaddafi loyalists to surrender. gaddafi has not been seen in public for several months, and is considered a fugitive in the country since the fall of the capitol of tripoli last month. >>> in the early hours of the morning, just before state lawmakers wrapped up the legislative session, republicans blocked the governor's plan to create more jobs through tax reform. lawmakers accuse governor brown of rushing through bills on the last legislative day. republicans want brown to call a special session to consider bills aiding the economy. brown proposed tax breaks for california businesses by encouraging them to buy equipment and expand in the state. >> all regions of california, the opportunity to get started sooner rather than later was putting people back to work. >> like i told the governor, i don't have any intentions of recommending to my caucus that they vote for something that they have
swollen lips and all kinds of chafing and -- and maybe some tears that bonnie will help me get through, but i can do it. i got the willpower. i've put in all the training. i deserve it. i deserve walking up thoon that other shore. how naive of me not to think of these almost science fiction little animals in the water. -- on that first night, this here -- so rude. [ cell phone ringing ] i think it's the gas company telling me my bill's due. on the first night i'm swimming and i'm telling you, i hosted a series called "the great catch of the world" and we went around belize for the jaguar in africa and the lion and the leopard. and then we did the final suit in north america about the north american mountain lion. all of you know if you have a dog occasionally sweet and what not. but if a dog is in a moment of nature when you're near it to chase something, you have forgotten how powerful and how fast that animal is and that we are such pathetic animals compared to the animals -- all the other animals on earth. and that mountain lion, it came at me and it pinned me down. it actually didn
is what we would love to do. host: time for a couple of more calls. bonnie, a republican. caller: i would like to know -- i read a story in "reader's digest" about a doctor who had studied a young man that had autism. he said he was a friend to the mother of the boy. he had found out that the boy had severe allergies. are there any studies that have gone along with that? guest: thank you for the question. i suspect you read that article about 10 years ago or maybe 15. there was a doctor in the uk who proposed the notion that he was recovering measles virus from people and was proposing a link. his papers have all been retracted by the charles the publish them. he had his license to practice withdrawn in the united kingdom. so i think that the scientific validity of that work has been called very seriously into question. there have been a lot of people -- people are looking very, very hard to find out what is causing autism. this is a terrible thing. would love to know the cause so that we can prevent it. but that study has been completely discredited. host: wilmington, north carolina, mel
for help. let's get to the phones. bonny, new jersey. caller: i like to ask about the crisis we face with the shortage of generic drugs, a lot of them used for chemotherapy, and other serious drug problems. it is wonderful that we're creating new drugs, but if we are dying because we cannot get the drug said have already been created -- i think a big problem is, i just do not understand. there were 178 drug shortages in 2010, up from 157 the year before, and only 55, which is more than it should be, five years prior. we're getting parts from china -- hip replacements, knee replacements, people going through surgery and winding up worse off than they were. before we start innovating, we should maybe get a handle on what we have. host: here is a story from "the new york times." we had a doctor last week talking about how cancer drugs were in short supply. doctors are coming up empty. guest: it is a serious problem the doctor has put forth clearly in terms of the -- problem. the caller has put it forth clearly in terms of a shortage. they're not entirely drugs for cancer, but oftentimes
